John Edwards To Require Mandatory Mental Evaluations for ALL

In a speech in Tipton, Iowa yesterday, Senator John Edwards described his health care program

"It requires that everybody be covered. It requires that everybody get preventive care," he told a crowd sitting in lawn chairs in front of the Cedar County Courthouse. "If you are going to be in the system, you can't choose not to go to the doctor for 20 years. You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are OK.
Edwards said his mandatory health care plan would cover preventive, chronic and long-term health care. The plan would include mental health care as well as dental and vision coverage for all Americans. (Emphasis added throughout)
Of course, as a lawyer, Mr. Edwards would know exactly how to write such a law.

This would leave the U. S. with a voluntary tax program and a mandatory health program with two massive bureaucracies in a race to achieve perfection.

Oh joy!

Silver lining: this might make CCWs easier to come by for some people!
